To All

I am new to Torque and Maui and would appreciated any help.

This is my current setup:
Where queue hi_mem has to run on a specific cluster node cn01

$ qmgr -c 'p s'
# Create queues and set their attributes.
# Create and define queue batch
create queue batch
set queue batch queue_type = Execution
set queue batch resources_default.nodes = 1
set queue batch resources_default.walltime = 01:00:00
set queue batch enabled = True
set queue batch started = True
# Create and define queue hi_mem
create queue hi_mem
set queue hi_mem queue_type = Execution
set queue hi_mem resources_default.neednodes = cn01
set queue hi_mem resources_default.nodes = 1
set queue hi_mem resources_default.walltime = 720:00:00
set queue hi_mem enabled = True
set queue hi_mem started = True
# Set server attributes.
set server scheduling = True
set server acl_hosts = manager
set server managers = root@*
set server managers += name@*
set server operators += name@*
set server operators += root@*
set server default_queue = batch
set server log_events = 511
set server mail_from = adm
set server scheduler_iteration = 600
set server node_check_rate = 150
set server tcp_timeout = 300
set server job_stat_rate = 45
set server poll_jobs = True
set server mom_job_sync = True
set server keep_completed = 300
set server next_job_number = 36
set server moab_array_compatible = True

When I submit a job to queue hi_mem i get the following:

$ checkjob 35

checking job 35

State: Idle  EState: Deferred
Creds:  user:jurgens  group:jurgens  class:hi_mem  qos:DEFAULT
WallTime: 00:00:00 of 30:00:00:00
SubmitTime: Thu Aug 15 08:45:45
  (Time Queued  Total: 00:00:01  Eligible: 00:00:01)

Total Tasks: 1

Req[0]  TaskCount: 1  Partition: ALL
Network: [NONE]  Memory >= 0  Disk >= 0  Swap >= 0
Opsys: [NONE]  Arch: [NONE]  Features: [cn01]

IWD: [NONE]  Executable:  [NONE]
Bypass: 0  StartCount: 0
PartitionMask: [ALL]
Flags:       RESTARTABLE

job is deferred.  Reason:  NoResources  (cannot create reservation for job
'35' (intital reservation attempt)
Holds:    Defer  (hold reason:  NoResources)
PE:  1.00  StartPriority:  1
cannot select job 35 for partition DEFAULT (job hold active)

but when I run the same job via queue batch there is no problem and the job
runs fine.

the job is a very simple echo sleep just to test the queue.
